32-year-old actress and singer Yulia Parshuta revealed shocking details of a three-year relationship with a man who raised his hand to her and threatened her and her loved ones with physical harm.
“Unfortunately, I also have a lot to remember. Then, in March 2013, a week after the appendectomy, on Nizhnyaya Syromyatnicheskaya Street, I received a punch in the stomach, which was already "decorated" with the stitches of the operation. Punch to the stomach from her man. Another blow, and God only knows, which is on account for our life together. I decided to run. No phone, bag, car keys, which he snatched from me. He was very strong. Very. I do not remember how I reached the Atrium, luckily remembering my friend's atelier. When I entered, I asked her for water and said that my bag had been stolen. And with all her might she showed that everything was fine with me,”Julia wrote on Instagram.
Parshuta admitted that she had been in such a terrible relationship for three years, and explained why: “It was the third year of our relationship. In fact - the 3rd year in a box of fear and despair. Without the ability to seek and find protection and a way out. Why? Because it was: 3rd year "I am to blame for everything", 3rd year "I am worthless", 3rd "I am not capable of anything" year. Because it was the 3rd year that I was intimidated to the bone. 3rd year, as the veil of hopelessness grew stronger from his threats. Because the threats are not just me. Threats "I will cut out your kind" and "you fuck if you go to the police." He was the smartest, most caring and attentive. He was an energetic polymath - a person with whom it is always interesting and fun. I fell in love with no memory. This happened to me for the first time. He was wonderful. The first few months. The first time I persuaded myself to forgive him was when he was kneeling at the Princess Turandot fountain in Old Arbat. My family has never been assaulted. Therefore, I did not know that it is not treated with a wise word and a gentle look. That he cannot be forgiven."
Note that Yulia Parshuta, like many other girls, decided to tell her story after the scandal that erupted over the statements of Regina Todorenko. The latter stated that victims of domestic violence are themselves to blame for being physically harmed. Now Regina asks for forgiveness and is going to help women who have suffered from assault.
